What do I do if a seller seems suspicious?

If a seller cannot speak with you over the phone, let you inspect the caravan before purchase but the deal seems too good to be true, then it probably is. Unfortunately, there are people who try their best to scam others into buying a caravan that might not be what was really advertised, is stolen or might not exist. 

Always try and get in contact with the seller on the phone and plan an inspection to see the caravan in person before exchanging any money. 

If you are engaged in ongoing communication with a suspicious seller, we urge you to exercise caution. If you feel that something is not right, you are under no obligation to inspect or purchase the caravan. 

 

Reporting a suspicious seller 

There a several ways you can report a suspicious seller. You can report by selecting the Report/Report this ad button on the ad itself. A pop up box will appear on your screen asking you for some further details about the ad you wish to report. You can find out more on this process here. 

You can also contact our customer care team here. Make sure to include screenshots of the messages. Our team will investigate the message and advise you on its validity.
